of 1988, john mccain would have defeated barack obama. the facts are there. if people turn out, if minority voters turnout, republicans have a disadvantage to start with. latino vote, it was just huge. you look at the states, look at florida, colorado, you look at nevada, you could even argue iowa, but state after state, the latino vote, if you take it out, the democrats would have lost, even in florida, it was 61-39 including the cubans. cuban-americans are not no longer the majority in florida among latinos, but the younger generations of cuban-americans vote like puerto rican or dominican voters, not the anti-castro parents and grandparents. asian-americans, that was the biggest shift. 75-25 for obama. i remember covering the 2000 race. gore and bush. i think bush won the asian-american vote before september 11th, asian-american was a swing vote leaning republican. yesterday, it was 3-to-1 democratic. urban-rural, it's -- mirror images. it's roughly 60-40, and demographically, which areas are growing, the urban areas or rural america? you wouldn't want to bet on rural americ
to join our system. and the thrust of a terrific book by john ikeen berry we have built this modern international system, this web of networks and associations and groupings and alliances, and everyone -- it's an open system. anyone who wants to join and -- play by the rules can do so. it's still the system that draws people from various parts of the world in to the web that we are at heart of it. whether it's the imf world bank, united nations, nay nato, et. cetera. the rerevised architecture we're building in asia. that's the essence of the competition. at the ends of the, it's exactly what the new yemen president did. he was willing to stand with the united states and do so publicly. and that is the ultimate challenge as jim was saying earlier, you know, mutual interest, mutual respect, i would add to that shared responsibility where we know that to solve any international challenge no one country particularly the united states can do it alone. but, you know, you can't solve the challenges as our former boss hillary clinton said. you can't solve any global challenge without meani
to the outside world and john cultural achievements of other countries. we must adhere to advancing the goals of socialist culture. and we should strive to be the grand goal of developing a strong socialist culture in china. [applause] [applause] we must intensify our efforts of the public services and innovation in management. we should also boost the fundamental society of the majority of the people. we must ensure that people's well-being and improve the cultural lives, which is a fundamental privilege. we should bring a select benefit , keeping progress to ensure that all people enjoy their lives and education, employment, and medical and aging care and housing so they will lead a better life. we must accelerate structural reform with social management, and we should quicken the pace of these systems. a law-based system featuring leadership, government institutions, and public education. in which it is separate from social organizations. where government is clearly established and social management serves the public and exercises dynamic response to emergencies. in these regards them as w
. john's college in santa fe, new mexico. my question is quite broad. i am interested in knowing should we, in the united states and the rest of the world, are there more distances after what we have seen. and also if you could talk about what these differences are. >> stamford connecticut. we are here today. speaking in new york, we made a couple of major points. one of which was the need for the growth of the spirit of pluralism and politics across the middle east region. when he was asked what the seeds of that growth or conditions that might foster that growth would be, he essentially reiterated his other point, which is that americans shouldn't think that they have much to do with creating or fostering that. granted the second point, i would ask this panel, are their seeds of growth of political pluralism or conditions that could help nurture us, and is the question also relevant? >> in your book you talk about the regional narrative. there is activity that should be talked about. the fact that someone in one country can see what is happening and respond. >> it is a combination sta
when president bush was pushing very hard, when john mccain was pushing hard. ted kennedy was seeking a lead than immigration reform was defeated by 15 those in the senate or so. so i mean, there's no guarantee it will happen, but the discussion about future election in the growing from latino vote, et cetera, et cetera may be exaggerated. two years ago we were all the 19 are lots of the democrats were on the 19, the republicans were cheering and it looks like the country was going in the other direction. marriage has been defeated. so i wouldn't sort of also take these trends as written and concrete, but certainly they look favorable and a steel love that quote as i can't remember his name on one of the talk shows, it is a great week to be latino. on the rest of latin america, and i think what michael said his rate, but i also think that immigration means more for mexico and central america and the caribbean than it does for the other countries. it's important, but by and large i don't think the election changes very much the equation for south america or brazil. i was looking for so
that this committee has a very long tradition, even before john dingell of working with members to identify problems in this country and to expose that and then coming back with legislation to fix it so it doesn't happen again. and one of those is, as we'll review this case, to see what was there in the recent inspection and the black particular, leaking boiler, the bird flying around, just what gives? if this was found just recently and it's our understanding is there are similar types of contamination in earlier years, what is the problem, what is the problem by not shutting down something like this until it is corrected and if you don't have the authority, been waiting to make sure that it's there. it seems reasonable to me that in fact he did have the authority to not only have unannounced inspections but to come in and corrected so that it didn't get to this stage. certainly with the deaths of people across the country and the questions that are raised today. as part of the tradition of this committee we have to have the right information and i guess one of the concerns that i have is the bipar
